Lead and Zinc mine of Tang-e Dozdan

Projects

Lead and Zinc mine of Tang-e Dozdan with the area of 7.5 square kilometer is located in the province of Isfahan near the city of Fereydoun Shahr. This district is located in the Sanandaj-Sirjan exploration zone. The district is in 30 km of the Bouin Miandasht section. The main road of Khomein-Aligudarz to Daran, the three way of the Aznavaleh, the villages of Aghcheh and Aghgol, Tang-e Dozdan. Both roads to the village of Aghgol are asphalted. The dirt road from the village of Aghgol, will be reached to the village of Tange Dozdan after 7.5km.

Reserve Type

  • Genesis: Probably Mississippi valley type.
  • Type of minerals and main minerals: Galena, Sphalerite, Pyrite in sulfide zone and Smithsonite, Hemimorphite and Cerussite in carbonate and oxide zones
  • Geochemical paragenesis: Pb, Zn, Ag, Cd, Mg, Ba

Geology

  • Host rock: Clastic rocks, Carbonate (Limestone, Dolomitic) and Jurassic and Cretaceous volcanic and the grade of mineral is high.
  • Age of host rock: Mesozoic (Jurassic and Cretaceous)

Reserve Amount

Mineral dimensions in zone no.1, which is the largest mineralization zone, is ​​۸۰ * ۱۱۰ meters, including several veins and lenses, carbonate and sulfide containing high grade. In zone no. 2, area is 50 * 50 meters, grade is lower, and we can see stockwork and the veins-veinlets with the relatively high density. Zone no. 3 has the area of 20 * 30 meters with high grade and zone no. 4 has the area of 90 * 80 meters, the grade is high and the total amount of lead and zinc grade is 5.2%.

Proven Reserve

According to exploratory operations in this area, the proven reserve is about 1.436.000 tones with the average grade of 5.2 percent of the total lead and zinc and the amount of silver and cadmium is significant. The probable reserve is about 3,000,000 tons with the average grade of 4 percent lead and zinc.

Facilities

Water, electricity and road are within 500 meters of the area in Tang-e Dozdan village.
